GLENDALE -- The Coyotes, working in conjunction with FOX Sports Arizona, raised $50,000 for Phoenix Children's Hospital thanks to an in-game telethon staged during the network's broadcast of Thursday's game against the Minnesota Wild.
"The generosity of our fans never ceases to amaze us," said Olivia Matos, the executive director of the Arizona Coyotes Foundation. "We are so appreciative of their giving hearts. Phoenix Children's Hospital has provided so many children with hope, healing and comfort, and we are proud to support it in any way we can."
All money raised during the broadcast will help fund the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at PCH. The new state-of-the-art building has allowed the hospital to expand the Center, and meet the demand for the growing number of patients it treats each year.
